Triumph Speedmaster vs Harley-Davidson 883 Iron vs Kawasaki VN900
The new £6,749 Triumph Speedmaster takes on the £6,699 Harley-Davidson 883 Iron and £7,000 Kawaski VN900 in our test of the middleweight cruisers, that offer custom motorcycle styling without the inflated pricetag and size of the bigger cruisers. Surprisingly, they don't feel cheap and can almost offer the same experience as their bigger custom brothers but for half the price. With the Harley and Triumph you also buy in to the 'brand', whereas the Kawasaki lacks kudos but makes up for it with the mean, pseudo hard tail styling, with the hidden rear shock giving not only cleaner lines, but also better ride quality than the others.
